A crazy guy in the Netherlands (Holland) have a dream that might soon be reality. His dream is to build a 2000 metre-high-mountain in the flatlands of the Netherlands. According to Zonneveld, engineers, construction firms, investors and experts are already busy discussing the feasibility of a man-made mountain that would include ski slopes, bobsleigh tracks, an ice rink, hiking trails, cliffs for climbing and scenic mountain roads with hairpin turns.
The project website receives hundreds of hits every day and more than 8200 people follow Zonneveld on Twitter.
Beyond being a tourist attraction, Zonneveld said his mountain would allow athletes to train in high altitudes and finally be on equal footing with competitors from countries with heights. “I’m living a dream right now. It would be marvelous if the mountain became reality by 2018,” Zonnenveld said.
